DIY Gathered Maxi Skirt

Hello Everyone! This weeks DIY is a gathered maxi skirt. I started this skirt about two years ago and I never got around to putting in the zipper. I finally hung the skirt in the doorway of my sewing room as a constant reminder to finish the skirt. Why I waited so long to put in the zipper still puzzles me. I’m in love with this skirt.

I styled the skirt with a matching DIY necklace. I have a tutorial recorded for this necklace as well as a longer version. This week I’ll be editing the videos so stay tuned for the tutorial.

How to Slay the Look

  • Skirt Pattern: I used the skills I learned from Mimi G’s Regal Maxi tutorial, you can also use McCall’s pattern M7355 
  • Fabric: I used wax print fabric. I recently bought some fabric from a shop called House of Mami Wata. I was satisfied with the quality of their fabric. I plan to make another gathered skirt with this fabric that I bought. You can find more selections of fabric here.
  • Necklace: Tutorial coming soon!!!
  • Shirt: Forever 21 (old)
